Gay Character Plans: ME3 Yes, DNF No

Casey Hudson tweets about the inclusion of potential gay love interests in Mass Effect 3, BioWare's upcoming RPG sequel: "Happy to confirm #ME3 supports wider options for love interests incl. same-sex for m&f chars, reactive to how you interact w/them in-game" (thanks Joystiq via GayGamer). On a semi-related note, a recent post on Eurogamer has word that a "gay robot" sidekick (Claptrap?) was dropped from plans for Duke Nukem Forever, though this character could still appear in a future title. The idea was "to explore how Duke would relate to a peer that might have a different sexual orientation," says Randy Pitchford. The Gearbox boss offers a spoiler while attempting to avoid spoilers: "I don't want to spoil it because we might go there. Ultimately the robot was in a situation where for an order for victory against the aliens to be accomplished, the robot's inner workings a nuclear generator had to be sacrificed" (thanks Kotaku via GayGamer).

Come to think of it, I don't believe there has ever been a truly gay or lesbian character in a Bioware game. They are all straight or bi. At least, that's true of all of the companions.

I think Obsidian did it perfectly in Fallout New Vegas. There are gay characters, but they felt no need to announce it, and the characters weren't one dimensional "I'm gay let's have sex" kind of characters.

I have a question...

Like Dragon Age, isn't Mass Effect a RPG game as well? If people want to play the roll of a straight or homosexual character in a game that allows both choices, then shouldn't it be just that, a choice?

Just because the option is there doesn't mean you have to CHOOSE it.
BTW wasn't there an achievement for sleeping with the elf in Dragon Age? Wonder how many people got it.

I play games for the fun factor--if want lessons in politically correct sexual etiquette circa ~2011 I will certainly look elsewhere. Stay out of my games! Thanks.

Having gay characters doesn't make it politically correct, it makes it realistic. There are gay folks in the world. There are gay folks who play video games.

I hope I'm being trolled.

If I want some of that agenda there are plenty of places on the Internet I can go to have my head dunked in that sort of propagandist drivel.

If you replaced the references to homosexuality in this post with African-American references, you'd sound just like my grandpa! Though, without the changes you sound just as ridiculous!

I'm a ignorant bigot, or a troll.

You should notify the American Psychiatric association about what you've discovered, as they think you're full of shit. I'm sure your exhaustive research trumps all the work they've done and investigated on the subject.

You might also want to let the other species and animals that inhabit our world know about this, as they engage in homosexual behavior, and you decided it's not natural.

Is that trolling or is the guy actually unaware of how funny it is that he's accusing someone else of needing "serious psychotherapy?"

I hope they handle it better than DA2 where if you are male every other male suddenly turns gay and if you are female every other female suddenly wants to sleep with you. I think it makes the characters weaker. I like how in ME2, some characters just aren't interested in sex with Shepard.
That's pretty much my thinking on it. OMG *insert name here* you're the champion! Let me bang my diddly bits off your diddly bits 'cause yeah baby! I *just want you*...ugh.

So, combined with the interview yesterday that mentioned there's no new love interests, that must mean one of the crew from the previous games might switch teams. I've got my money on Kaidan.
